We are in the process of seeking funding for our development and flight tests. We are looking for partnerships and collaborators to help us make this a viable business model. If you have an opportunity or would like to know more about our work, get in touch with us.
Our Solar plane is designed to be modular. Our engineering team has designed and developed the aircraft and batteries from scratch. The modular design is also easily scalable for various payload sizes and protocols.
Our team! Our team members have worked on stratospheric and space-related projects. Our team brings together unique capabilities that make us what we are today.
Our design challenge is coming up with a lightweight fixed-wing UAV with a relatively high aspect ratio for soaring at stratospheric heights. The aircraft design should also allow for maximum efficiency across all technical aspects including batteries, MPPTs and flight performance. Both photovoltaics (PVs) and battery technology are evolving rapidly and in time to come solar planes will be able to execute complex tasks that drones of today can achieve but, with better flight endurance.
The stratosphere is a new frontier for competition between aviation and technology giants where solar planes could offer advantages over satellites. This includes lower costs, easier manoeuvrability and fast deployment turnaround time. Solar planes will be able to support and complement the current satellites and ground stations acting as relays. Such technology also could support BLOS ( Beyond Line of Sight) missions such as launching rockets. Subsidiaries of Airbus SE, Boeing Co and Softbank Group Corp are developing stratospheric drone which could fly autonomously for months. A research firm NSR said that high-altitude aircraft which includes, drones, balloons and airships could bring in 1.7 billion in revenue over the next decade. There are an estimated 40 programs underway. Singapore is strategically located, we are known to be a regional aerospace hub. Having a stratospheric capability will put us on the map as one of the most capable countries in the upcoming future.
Operation of Stratospheric Vehicle Fleet and Ground Station; Mission-as-a-Service provides users with a dedicated fleet of Solar Vehicles to cost-effectively collect scientifically validated atmospheric observations over extensive areas and extended periods of time.
To develop sustainable and profitable unmanned platform solutions and services for various industries.
